Description: In this first talk from our summer sesshin, Henry offers a fresh perspective on what life actually is. He shows us how koans can lead us from a misguided understanding of life to a startling inclusivity of all life. Henry shares experiences from his recent travels in Guatemala and explores the roots of the word “truth,” relating it to the meaning of “Dharma.” Lastly, Henry offers two seemingly opposing but essential and mutually supportive strategies that we can bring to practice: effort and surrender.
